HP is throwing everything at consumers in an attempt to move units. Over the weekend the company slashed the price of the tablet, bringing its cost down below iPad prices. Obviously early adopters of the device weren’t too thrilled about that revelation so HP is giving them credit for app purchases to make it up to them.

HP is not google or Apple. They will take another bath… and probably won’t learn that a Widget is still a Widget without a clear innovative vision (at a PREMIUM PRICE).
HP is probably the last (definitely the bottom 3) company I would buy anything from
A good innovative platform sells units. Apps are nice of course but I used my ipad for months without using any 3rd party apps, or hardly anyway. And with the dozens of apps I have now I still use the built in apps 95% of the time, web browser, email etc…
But that said, I actually thought HP would have the tablet that finally gave iPad some competition. Finally a non-android option. HP may not be apple or google but they are one of the elite PC makers and they are big. But they aren’t much for innovators and I guess it’s hurting them.
And BTW, google? Theyre just bunch of copycat rip off artists in the tablet O/S world.
